Recipes I've Shared:

Woman's World Weight Loss Soup

I saw this recipe in Woman's World, their recipe called for 4 cups of vegetables in total, but I tweaked this recipe to get much more veggies into the soup, and jazzed it up with extra spices, and tried to use "no salt added" wherever possible.

Chicken Chili

A hearty meal, for those cold winter afternoons, and a great lunch for those weekdays when a hearty meal is necessary.

Celery Root Soup

I've been wanting to try this out for a while now, and there are so many different variations to the recipe for "Celery Root Soup" out there. I just had to add mine into the mix.

Butternut Squash Soup

A creamy golden soup that tastes as good as it looks.
High in potassium, low in sodium.

Chicken Vegetable Alphabet soup.

Old fashioned, Chicken vegetable soup with those alphabet letters

Mexicali Chicken Soup

A great tomato based soup, that uses up leftover chicken and has a hot and spicy salsa flavour

French Onion Soup Au Gratin

This Recipe originated in the Good Housekeeping Cookbook from 1980. I have made it many times using the original canned soup broth, but due to it's high salt content, I've adapted this to using my own home made low-sodium beef and chicken broth

Adriana's High Fibre Bars

A quick and tasty way to get your daily fibre.

The recipe for the caramel portion of these bars is from Chef Meg's Caramel Popcorn recipe, and the remaining ingredients in the recipe are what I came up with to create my high fibre bars.

BBQ Pork Chow Mein

A great tasty way to get those veggies in

Chicken Spaghetti Supper

A recipe that tastes like Chicken Cacciatore.

Chicken Stew by Slow Cooker

This is a good way to use up the meat from those chicken legs I used to make chicken soup stock with the other night.
The meat is already cooked so everything is easy. Just add everything to the slow cooker and when you get home dinner is served.

BBQ Pulled Pork

I've been wanting to try this BBQ sauce for a while and with a pork loin roast in the fridge, I decided to give it a try in my slow cooker.

Andalusian Salad

This award winning salad was originally created by a great vegetarian cook, Usha Meister. I've tweaked it a little for my own tastes, by adding more dried fruit and changing up the vegetables, and using quinoa instead of rice.

Tuna Salad for Sandwiches

A quick and easy salad for sandwiches.

My variation of Chef Meg's Recipe

Thai Green curry chicken

Adapted from a recipe in the Canadian Living Slow Cooker Cookbook Special

This is an awesome recipe. True Thai taste.

Chicken Pad Thai

Had some chicken left from dinner, so threw together a Chicken version of my Pad Thai

Tom Ka Gai Soup (Coconut Chicken Soup)

If you like Thai Food, this one is especially for you. So flavourful, and a great meal if Rice noodles are added.

Beef Pad Thai

Had some roast beef left from dinner, so threw together a beef version of my Pad Thai

Apple, Sage & Fennel Breakfast Sausage

Another recipe I came up with in order to be able to have a food I like, without all the fat, sodium and calories.

Amaretto Love Cheesecake

This recipe was adapted to give a lower calorie count from a 1980's "Canadian Living" Christmas Special Cookbook.

If you want to impress, this is the desert to do it with.

This "No Bake", no fail, cheesecake recipe is as lite as a cloud and will use up almost every pan that you own in your kitchen but the taste of the finished product is worth every single dish that you have to wash.

"faux" Fried Chicken

Crispy like KFC, but without all the calories

Low Sodium Scalloped Potatoes

Easy to make, lower sodium version of scalloped potatoes.

Very Tasty too!

basic white sauce (Roux)

These are the basic 3 ingredients that are necessary to make a cream sauce. What you add to the above ingredients will determine what type of sauce you make.

Low-sodium Hot and Sour soup

as good as the local Chinese restaurant's but without the heart attack from the sodium.

Chicken Salad

Great for lunches, low in sodium and fat.
